Home Dearie Home (song of a homesick sailor, MP3)

'Home Dearie Home' is an old ballad in which the narrator, a sailor, longs to be back home (Boston, Massachusetts, in this version). The song was perforned by American baritone Mordy Bauman (1912–2007), part of a collection called 'Songs of American Sailormen'. The original 78rpm record was digitised for the Internet Archive by the California-based Kahle/Austin Foundation. (3.8 MiB, MP3, 2:05 minutes)
